About The Artist
I am a London-based freelance graphic designer & illustrator specialising in anime/manga style illustration, character design, sequential art and graphic design with years of self-taught skills and experience. A deep interest in animation and art at a very early age resulted in an ongoing hobby of drawing which has developed into a professional career as my art continually progressed to a more advanced level over recent years.
Always striving to improve my work and expanding my range of skills, I keep myself occupied by working on all sorts of creative projects and experimenting with various types of media whenever I can.
My work has made appearances in various media including professional publications, small-press books, magazines, posters, flyers, corporate websites, merchandise, cosmetics and personal promotional material.
